The prophets are the messengers of God Almighty to us to guide us to the right path and the sound approach that God has revealed to us so that we may improve our affairs and populate the earth. The prophets are those to whom God revealed His message and commanded them to convey His law and call them in the best way to worship the One and Only God.

Many stories of the prophets and messengers have been mentioned in the Holy Qur’an, for the sake of lesson and knowledge of the conditions of the people who preceded us, and to take into account what happened and what is the similarity between our lives and theirs. God Almighty urges us to persevere in the truth no matter how great the circumstances are and no matter how severe the afflictions are, to defend the truth always and forever and to know falsehood. Avoid it and fight it with all possible means that God Almighty has made available to us.

Stories of the Prophets, Moses, peace be upon him:

The story of our Master Moses, peace be upon him, is considered the most famous story of all among the stories of the prophets and the most mentioned in terms of the surahs of the Holy Qur’an, as it was mentioned in many noble surahs and verses.

The story of our master Moses, peace be upon him, was mentioned in the Holy Qur’an in more than twenty noble surahs, some surahs that came in detail, such as Surat Al-Baqarah, Al-A’raf, Taha, Ash-Shu’ara’, and Al-Qasas, and some surahs that came in brief, such as Surat Ar-Rum, Ad-Dukhan, and others.

Our Master Moses, peace be upon him, was mentioned in the Holy Qur’an more than a hundred times, and our Messenger Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him peace, used to say when he was severely harmed: “May God have mercy on Moses. He was harmed more than this, but he was patient.”

His lineage, peace be upon him:

Our master “Moses,” peace be upon him, is from the Children of Israel. His lineage ends with our master “Jacob bin Ishaq bin Ibrahim,” peace be upon them. God Almighty sent him to Pharaoh and his people to invite them to worship the One, All-Powerful God and not to associate anything with Him.

His birth, peace be upon him:

The verses in Surat Al-Qasas in the Holy Qur’an came in more than forty verses that dealt with the circumstances during which our master “Moses,” peace be upon him, was born, beginning with what God revealed to his mother, his condition when it became strong and stable, his migration to the land of Midian, and his honor of prophecy during his return from the land of Midian to Egypt. And his call to the tyrannical Pharaoh and his people and the types of torment that befell them, and how Pharaoh became an example, and the actions of the Children of Israel with their Prophet…

Our Master Moses, peace be upon him, was born in circumstances in which Pharaoh had gone far in his oppression and arrogance in the land and had filled the land with tyranny and corruption. He was making the children of Israel taste the most severe types of torment, and while the children of Israel were in the most severe types of torment and calamity due to the actions of Pharaoh, a soothsayer would come forward to Pharaoh and tell him that The demise of his kingdom and his destruction at the hands of a child born to the children of Israel, so Pharaoh immediately orders the slaughter of the sons and keeps the women alive.

The mother of our master “Moses” peace be upon him:

The mother of our master Moses, peace be upon him, was about to give birth to her child. She was afraid and anxious. When she went into labor and gave birth, she hid the matter from the people around her, fearing that what happened to others like him would happen to him. Then God Almighty inspired her to put him in a box and throw him into the sea.

As soon as she did what God Almighty inspired her to do, she asked her daughter to follow her brother’s trail and see what would happen to him. Indeed, his sister followed his trail and was terrified when the box stopped in front of Pharaoh’s palace himself!

As soon as Pharaoh’s wife saw the newborn, God Almighty instilled love for him in her heart, so she asked her husband Pharaoh to adopt him as their son. At the same time, the heart of Moses’ mother was almost broken and she was suffering from intense fear and grief for her newborn, but she was confident that God would not let him down and would protect him with His unshakable protection.

So God Almighty forbade all breastfeeding mothers to our master Moses, peace be upon him, and despite his continuous cries of extreme hunger, he refused all breastfeeding women. So God guided his sister and she approached Pharaoh’s palace and said: (Shall I direct you to a wet nurse?) So they asked her to bring her. In a hurry, the daughter brought her mother as a wet nurse, and Moses, peace be upon him, responded to her.

God’s promise was true. Her son, “Moses,” peace be upon him, responded to her and even returned him to her home to take care of him until he grew up and was weaned. As soon as Musa’s mother finished weaning him, she returned him to the palace so that he could grow up within its walls and become of great importance.

His message, peace be upon him:

When our master Moses, peace be upon him, reached forty years of age, God Almighty revealed the message to him, so he conveyed the message to Pharaoh and his people. He was a refuge for all the oppressed, oppressed and bereaved people to protect them from what burdened them of clear injustice and great pain.

It appeared from our master Moses, peace be upon him, that he openly told Pharaoh and his people what they hated, so he disappeared from sight. One day, while he was walking in the streets of the city, one of his people asked him for help, so Moses, peace be upon him, helped him, and he was very strong, so he struck the Copt and was the final result, so Moses, peace be upon him, regretted it deeply.

He asked forgiveness from his Lord and repented to Him and repented of his actions. He was anxious and anxious after he killed the man, and while he was in this state, the same Hebrew man asked for his help a second time from another Copt. Our master Moses, peace be upon him, became angry with him and said to him: “You are a clear linguist.”

The news of Moses’ killing of the man spread in the city, and Pharaoh ordered the people to search for him to take revenge. A man came to Moses quickly and told him that the people were searching for him, so Moses, peace be upon him, left the city under the cover of darkness.

Moses, peace be upon him, headed to the land of Madyan (currently Jordan), where there was one of God’s prophets, Shuaib, peace be upon him. Our master Moses arrived in Madyan after a difficult journey fraught with danger.
